The Crags, born and raised in Durango, CO circa 2010, creates music inspired by living in the Desert Southwest…calling their genre psych-a-desert rock. Take three parts dreamy/psych/shoegaze, two parts heavy/grungy/fuzzed-out rock, and add a healthy dose of surf DNA…these indie songs sound like what you’d get if a “palm tree and a cactus had a baby.” Singer/guitarist Tracy Ford handles the majority of the crafty songwriting, general pizzazz, and party favors. The incendiary guitar-work is compliments of Tim Lillyquist. Kicking out the jams, drums, and tasty vocals is John Ford. Smiles and bong-rattling bass are provided by Dan Leek. Never predictable, sometimes rowdy, there’s always a good time to be had at a Crags show!

Farmington Hill has been entertaining audiences with spirited, country-fried indie rock since 2006. Paul “Bubba” Iudice approached Erik Nordstrom about collaborating on some country and folk songs that didn’t quite fit Bubba’s punk bands at the time. Before long, a band was born…with Bubba on acoustic guitar and Erik on telecaster. The two singer-songwriters are joined by Kelly Rogers on lap steel/vocals, Jim Belcher on bass/vocals, and Dave Sachs on drums. This is music suitable for both a raucous Saturday night and the accompanying Sunday hangover.

Little Wilderness embodies homegrown rock n’ roll that pays tribute to the environment around the Four Corners. Established in 2011, they have been a staple of the Durango musical community. Paul Henderson writes catchy tunes, sings, and plays guitar. Paul is joined by guitar wizard Dan Szabo, bassist Juan Lopez, and drummer David Sachs. In 2019, they released their full-length debut album, Big Tent, on Austin’s own Flak Records. The album is an eclectic compilation of songs that were born in the era of loud amps and hard hitting drums. Little Wilderness takes pride in their craft, striving to be true to their roots and to inspire their listeners and counterparts to do the same. Rock ‘n Roll will never die!

Pre-order copies of the live album (CD or vinyl) are available for sale here.
